    Depends on the project you're working on. If you're working on TF sports car customs, you may want to go with the Future (which leaves a nice glossy shine). If you're going for bots/parts that are flat or don't need the shine, go with the flat sealer.

    Future is an acrylic based floor cleaner. You can use a brush or spray it with an airbrush (but I think you'd need to thin it a bit for airbrush use--not sure though, don't use one). I simply brush it on the parts or bots that I think need the seal and shine.

    Future does not need to be thinned for use with an air brush :)

    You can also flatten in some with Flat Base for a semi-gloss or even matte finish.
